Scor-pal and Paper Smooches Week with Virginia Nebel

 Hi everyone, This week the designers from Scor-pal and  Paper Smooches  have an awesome blog hop for you.  Be sure to stop by everyone's blog to see what they've been up to.  Scor-Pal will be giving away 3 prizes packages - each one includes a Paper Smooches stamp that we've shown this week as well as Scor-tape. Leave comments on our posts this week for your chance to win!

Hi, it's Virginia here and excited to share with you a cute little gift card holder I made using Paper Smooches Retail Therapy stamp set and the Scor-pal tool.




The construction of this circle card uses the popular double-pocket card style.  Below I've included the steps on how to create the double-pocket and I've added the circle twist at the end.

First, start with an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper and score into equal quandrants at 4.25 inches vertically and5.5 inches horizaontally.


Then follow the folding steps below:


 





 

To keep the circle card together, use thin Scor-tape along the bottom half of each panel to secure the pocket together.  This double pocket card would also be a fun addition to your scrapbook pages to hold journaling tags too!
